Nobody with an eye on the state of the climate change game can have failed to notice that the failing science has not led to changed policies – or at least not overtly. Meanwhile climate zealots seem to be as active as ever, and if anything more aggressive.
The exaggerations are still with us, the lies about scientific certainty and inevitable catastrophe are still being peddled with no real attempt to reinstate any semblance of scientific integrity or dignity. So where is it all leading, or should we see such a question as too naive? Should we simply refer to the peddlers of climate change propaganda as Eco-Fascists? Or is it too early to call a spade a spade?
Well it seem to me that climate propaganda, at least within the EU, has not been unduly impacted by the failure of its catastrophic predictions to materialise.
- The Arctic is not melting on cue.
- The global climate is not warming as models predicted.
- Deaths from malaria are declining not rising.
- Severe weather events are not becoming more common.
- Sea levels are rising no faster than before industrialisation.
- There are other important climate theories apart from the CO2 theory.
- Key climate scientists were exposed as vindictive and partial by Climategates 1 and 2.
And so on and so on. But none of this seems to be making any real difference to committed individuals and major institutions promoting climate alarm as a matter of policy. Now Climategate 2 has been digested and with all that we have learned about policy-based science, it may be time for more genuine alarm, because it doesn’t look good.
The science no longer matters – it never did except as a launch platform for UN global control policies. Eco-fascist may well be more accurate than we’d like it to be. It’s all about political control. Of course it always was and it’s been obvious for years that this is so, but the scientific garbage got in the way and still provides smokescreens and distractions for those who need it.
John Holdren is advisor to President Obama for Science and Technology, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST). The book Ecoscience, was first published in 1978 and coauthored by John Holdren, Paul Ehrlich and Anne Ehrlich. It contains these words :-
Perhaps those agencies, combined with UNEP and the United Nations population agencies, might eventually be developed into a Planetary Regime—sort of an international superagency for population, resources, and environment. Such a comprehensive Planetary Regime could control the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources, renewable or nonrenewable.
The Regime might also be a logical central agency for regulating all international trade, perhaps including assistance from DCs to LDCs, and including all food on the international market.
The Planetary Regime might be given responsibility for determining the optimum population for the world and for each region and for arbitrating various countries’ shares within their regional limits. Control of population size might remain the responsibility of each government, but the Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed limits.
This kind of thinking has been going on for a long time, so the failure of mainstream climate science isn’t going to make much difference to true believers and especially those who manipulate their beliefs. If we’re not talking about Eco-Fascism here, then it’s too close to matter anyway. So yes – Eco-Fascist is the right label
